Irma Yolanda's story

Irma, 32, is married and mother of three children who live in her house; none of them are attending school. She’s a housewife and farmer with three years of primary education; she was unable to continue because her parents couldn’t give her economic support. She learned to grow coffee from her husband and has been doing so with him for more than six years. The land she and her husband work is their own thanks to their effort and work of many years. Her main and most important customer is IHCAFE (Honduran Coffee Institute) since they guarantee and purchase the harvests ahead of time because of its quality and because of the transparency with which they work.

Today, she’s asking the Comixmul cooperative for financing she plans to use to buy manure, urea and coffee plant formula to better care for her crop and thus obtain a better harvest. Her future plan is to be able to expand the coffee plantation and to have her crops in excellent, attractive condition for her customers because her coffee crop is her only source of income for her and her family’s support.
